Let's start with the positives - it is located in a perfect place in the heart of San Telmo area and it has a nice patio where you can relax when the weather is nice. That would be it. Now the negatives. First of all,...More

Location in San Telmo is ideal. A late 19th Century construction built around two interior courtyards, it's surprisingly quiet inside. Rooftop terrace. Brewed coffee-rolls-powdered juice breakfast. Veteran hostelers will not be surprised by the kitchen; poorly lit, poorly equipped. There's no concierge as such, so...More

San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San
Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made
Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many
different cultures: a true child of immigration, much
like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after
dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both
locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee
